  1. Juan Gil Honoro Vera Monastrell Organic 2017
    VM90
    $7.98
    Availability:In Stock
    90 Points! Vivid red. Pungent red berry preserve and cherry aromas are complicated by smoky mineral and floral notes. Appealing sweet and seamless on the palate, offering juicy raspberry and bitter cherry flavors that become sweeter with air but avoid jamminess. Finishes smooth and long, with gentle tannic grip and lingering spiciness. The bang for the buck here is pretty serious. (raised in stainless steel tanks) - Josh Raynolds, Vinous Media Learn More
  2. Pago de Carraovejas Ribera del Duero Reserva 2014
    WE94
    JD97
    $64.98
    Availability:In Stock
    97 Points! A magical wine, the 2014 Reserva from winemaker Almudena Calvo is largely Tempranillo blend with 6% Cabernet Sauvignon and 4% Merlot, all aged in French oak for a year. Deep and powerful, with beautiful concentration, it’s nevertheless incredibly elegant and seamless on the palate, and shows terrific complexity in its blackcurrants, graphite, white flowers, and vanilla bean aromas and flavors. A wine of great intensity as well as purity, it builds with time in the glass and has a fabulous finish that won’t quit. It’s not for those craving lightweight aromas and flavors, but it’s a thrilling wine. Drink it any time over the coming 10-15 years. - Jeb Dunnuck, jebdunnuck.com Learn More

    Bright violet color. Spice-accented red/blue fruits on the nose, along with a suave floral overtone.

  6. Casa Castillo Jumilla Vino de Finca 2016
    WA92
    $16.98
    Availability:In Stock

    There is a new middle-of-the-range red, above the Monastrell and below the single-vineyard wines, already in its second vintage with the 2016. This 2016 Vino de Finca comes from the oldest vineyard (from the grapes that used to go to the Monastrell) and also from different parts within the estate. It's mainly Monastrell with some 5% Garnacha, fermented with part of full clusters and indigenous yeasts and matured in oak foudres for one year. This is incredibly aromatic and expressive, with floral notes that I don't often find in Monastrell, elegant, balanced, fresh ... simply unbelievable. It has an outstanding palate, with refined tannins and great length. - Luis Gutierrez, robertparker.com

  7. Artadi Rioja Valdegines 2016
    JS97
    WA94
    $51.98
    Availability:In Stock

    94 Points! The 2016 Valdeginés comes from an organically farmed vineyard planted 35 to 40 years ago at 600 meters in altitude in the village of Laguardia. From an east-facing plot of five hectares opposite La Poza de Ballesteros, the vines are younger here (from the early 1980s), and they get the morning sun. In a cooler year, like this 2016, the grapes ripened quite slowly. The Valdeginés fermented with indigenous yeasts in open-top wooden vats after a 24- to 48-hour cold soak and then matured in barrel until malolactic was completed, yet there is no trace of oak (the élevage was shortened to nine months in barrel), instead it's floral and vibrant in the palate. This is always the first single-vineyard wine offered for tasting, and it tends to be their prettiest wine; in 2016 it was really captivating, very clean, fresh and open from the first minute after being poured in the glass. 2016 seems to be a very transparent vintage, and this is a great example of it. Superb! 13,000 bottles produced. Drink: 2019-2026. - Luis Gutierrez, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

  8. Raul Perez Bierzo La Vizcaina La Vitoriana 2016
    WA96
    $33.98
    Availability:In Stock
    96 Points!  The vines at La Vitoriana are from a north-facing part of the vineyard and are extremely old, and the grapes show their best between 13% and 13.5% alcohol. The maceration of the 2016 La Vizcaína La Vitoriana is the longest of all wines from La Vizcaína wines, and it always has very strong balsamic notes. It's subtle and elegant with a velvety texture, with lots of energy and inner strength. Pérez selects about half of the vineyard, and he feels 2016 is the year that best represents the character of the place. I'd add it's probably the best vintage so far. - Luis Gutierrez, robertparker.com

    Availability:In Stock
    96 Points!  Some richer, darker and deeper fruit character with plums, blackberries and a dark, earthy streak. The tannins are more upright, more elevated, and the fruit is richer and darker than in the Labastida. This has real presence, grip and energy.  - JamesSuckling.com

    93 Points!  Limpid straw-yellow. Powerful pear, nectarine and melon qualities on the highly perfumed nose, which is complemented by smoky mineral, jasmine and ginger nuances. Sappy, mineral-laced orchard and pit fruit stain the palate and become spicier as the wine stretches out. Rich, yet nervy in style, finishing very long and energetic, with resonating florality and a lingering mineral flourish.

Shows impressive clarity and lift. Finishes very long and precise, leaving persistent mineral and floral notes behind.

  12. Bodegas Mauro Mauro 2016
    WA93
    $42.98
    Availability:In Stock
    93 Points!  The eponymous 2016 Mauro is mostly Tempranillo (or Tinto Fino) with some Syrah from 80 hectares of different vineyards, mostly in the villages of Tudela de Duero, Traspinedo and Santibañez. It fermented in stainless steel and matured in French and American oak barrels and foudres for 15 months. 2016 is a cooler, more Atlantic and more drinkable vintage with contained ripeness, fine tannins and nice balance. - Luis Gutierrez, robertparker.com

    A tremendous deal on a grape that, due to its tricky growing season and tiny ripening band, is typically known for not  'delivering the goods' on a value level.  This exotic, and sophisticated Viognier is grown from certified organic vineyards in the valley of Jumilla, southeastern Spain.

    JD94
    JS94
    WA92
    $26.98
    Availability:In Stock
    94 Points! One of the flagship cuvées from this estate that’s produced in every vintage, the 2015 Reserva is a blend of 70% Tempranillo and the rest Garnacha, Mazuelo, and Graciano that spent 24 months in used French and American oak. Blackberries, currants, cigar wrapper, cedar box, and hints of vanilla all flow to a medium-bodied, concentrated, beautiful Rioja that has ripe tannins, beautiful balance, and a great finish. You couldn't go wrong with a case of this. - Jeb Dunnuck

    94 Points!  Complex nose with ripe black cherries, deeply integrated cedary oak, baking spices, dried flowers, leather, fresh tobacco and earthy notes. This is silky and mellow with long, laid-back tannins that deliver ripe dark plum flavors into a spicy and earthy finish. - JamesSuckling.com

  18. Dominio de Pingus Ribera del Duero Psi 2016
    JS94
    WA92-93
    $26.98
    Availability:In Stock
    92-93 Points!  I  tasted the...2016 PSI a few weeks before bottling, so I tasted the final blend in tank and ready to go into bottle. What came to mind when I smelled this sample was some of the old vintages of Pesquera. All the grapes come from the north and east of Aranda del Duero, from the cooler part of the appellation. The logistics of doing this volume is not easy, and in 2016 they were able to ferment 100% of the volume in their own winery, which gave them more control. The year was naturally fresher, mostly through higher yields, and they also managed the harvest date with more precision. All this translates into a fresher wine with more precision and elegance...probably the finest vintage of PSI—finer, longer and sharply focused. According to Sisseck, this is the PSI he always dreamed about. - Luis Gutierrez, robertparker.com

  19. Olivares Altos de la Hoya Monastrell Jumilla 2016
    VM90
    $10.98
    Availability:In Stock
    90 Points! Deep, vivid ruby color. Vibrant red/blue fruit scents, along with building spiciness and a sexy floral topnote. Silky and energetic on the palate, with a core of brisk acidity adding lift and cut to sweet cherry, boysenberry and floral pastille flavors. Focused and lithe on the clinging, blue fruit-driven finish, which is framed by fine-grained, harmonious tannins. The blend of power and elegance here is pretty impressive, as is the value that it delivers. - Josh Raynolds, Vinous Media Learn More
